JR ROBOTICS CAMP - Intro to Robotics and Programming With Lego We-Do Robotics & Mbots. and the new Lego Boost Ages 5 to 8 We are so pleased to be able to bring LEGO ® Boost ® to our students at Renaissance! Boost is the newest robotics kit available to our younger robotics kids. Students will build a base robot as they begin to learn the programming process. All instructions and programming are through an App called Boost by LEGO. The Hub of the robot can connect to the tablet using Bluetooth. Once they are comfortable moving their bots they will add a sensor that detects Color and Distance. It can also double as a light! We will then expand the experience by building Vernie, the robot that moves his arms, turns his head and raises his eyebrows to show expressions. As students build Vernie, the building instructions pause at a few points for programming sessions. At first, the platform will show the kids how to program specific moves, but as they build the bot, students have the opportunity to use what they have learned and program on their own! We are so excited to get programming with Vernie and your students. DESIGN, BUILD, PROGRAM AND CONQUER CHALLENGES Our LEGO® WeDo™ robotics program helps students beginning at a young age to develop and hone their skills in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). About mbot Robotics Your children will build their own mBot – a fun but powerful robot with motors, sensors, and the ability to be programmed using the Scratch programming language from MIT (the same language we use in our Video Game Programming courses). Your children will learn by completing a series of fun challenges that will allow them to teach their ‘bot to do surprisingly complex things.
